Purchasing

It is the responsibility of CALU's Purchasing Department to obtain all goods and services at the lowest possible cost to the University.  

The Purchasing Department is dedicated to providing the highest level of quality, value and satisfaction to the campus (departments). In conforming to this policy, competitive sealed bids will be solicited for purchases over $19,400.  If the goods and/or services being requested are part of Department of General Services (DGS) Contracts, CoStars Contracts or Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), bidding will not be required unless otherwise stated in the contract's terms and conditions. 

The Purchasing Department is dedicated to supporting the primary mission of the University to provide quality education for our students.

Please contact our department if you need assistance.
